Olympics Notes: London Olympics Legacy Questioned As Adults In Sport Drop
London's Olympic legacy "was called into question again" on Thursday after the latest Active People Survey reported the number of adults playing sport in England "had fallen" since the 2012 London Games. The indicator of sports participation among English people over the age of 16 "showed there had been a 220,000 drop in those active for at 30 minutes once a week between October and April" (London TELEGRAPH, 6/13). ... Cambodian PM Hun Sen on Thursday inaugurated a seven-story building at the National Olympic Committee headquarters, "urging athletes to increase training towards victory" when the country hosts the Southeast Asian Games Games in '23. The headquarters, which took 18 months to construct in the complex of the capital's Olympic Stadium, include the offices of 40 sports federations and the National Paralympics Committee (XINHUA, 6/13).
